All issues to be discussed with India: Pakistan

Islamabad: Pakistan said Thursday it will discuss all disputes with Indian Foreign Secretary Subrahmanyam Jaishankar when he visits the country between March 3 and 4.

"Kashmir, Siachin, Sir Creek and other issues would be discussed with the Indian foreign secretary," said foreign office spokesperson Tasneem Aslam at the weekly media briefing, Dawn reported.

"We welcome this Indian initiative," she added.

Pakistan and India, who have fought two of their three wars over disputed Muslim-majority Kashmir, have blamed each other for an upsurge in firing and shelling which started in October last year.

US Secretary of State John Kerry last month appealed to both nations to resume the talks, saying Washington was "deeply concerned" about a surge in violence on the border in Kashmir.
